Event Description


Prima la Musica … and Der Schauspieldirektor will be the Black Box Studio production (January 23-26, 30-31 and February 1-2), directed by Ian Silverman, an Eastman Directing Master of Music Candidate, with musical direction by Timothy Long, Music Director of Eastman Opera Theatre. These two short operas – one by Mozart and the other by his great rival Antonio Salieri — were originally presented as a double bill in February 1786, and each is a highly amusing send-up of the creation of an opera, with character that range from poets with writer’s block to rival divas fighting over star billing.
